Park your small trailer/RV in our cottonwood grove and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Southfork valley in northwest Wyoming. We are a retired couple who want to share our stunning mountain views and rural property with travelers who share the Hipcamp values. Easy access to hiking, hunting, fishing, biking.

The elevation here is 5600ft. so even when days are warm and sunny – usually in the 80s – nights cool off into the 50s. You would be close to the house but screened by a grove of trees. We have 5 acres in a beautiful rural area. You can be as private as you like, or join us for an iced tea on the porch and coffee and muffins in the morning.

We are a 20 minute drive from Cody, in a beautiful mountain valley. Our place is perfect for a night or two of respite from travel and tourist traffic.

Sean is a retired wildlife biologist with extensive knowledge of the area. Renée is a designer/educator.

We can accommodate only self contained camping vehicles up to 24ft. (This is important – larger vehicles will not be able to turn around). We provide electricity and water, but no bathrooms at this time and no dump station.

Sean and Helen were wonderful hosts! There property is beautiful, peaceful, and quiet. The directions were accurate and the area felt very safe. Helen and Sean were very welcoming and showed us right where to park. They even offered us an extension cord so we could recharge our computers.
In the morning we were offered French press coff and homemade toast with butter and jam! And they have two dogs that love to be pet!
We were also only an hours drive from Yellowstone National Park! We highly recommend staying here.

Lovely, spacious and welcoming. Enjoy the quiet nestled under a shade tree. Nice level spot in the grass.

Sean and Rene are two of the most pleasant Hipcamp folks you'll ever want to meet. They're concerned about your welfare, have a gorgeous little spot next to their pasture which looks at mountains aced foothills from 3 sides and is very peaceful, right down to the gurgling of the irrigation ditch up near the road. Such a soothing sound. They're right about their size restriction in their site bio. Pay heed. We have a 27' 5th wheel and a crew cab, and we made it but the 2 turns are tight, especially so at the road. Fact is it's a warm and welcoming HC, only an hour from Yellowstone, 35 miles from the 700k+ Shoshone Ntl Forest and 15 minutes from Cody. Give Sean and Rene a try if you're here. You'll find them to embody the principals of Hipcamp!

Sean was a great host. The site is.clean and neat. There is a flower and vegetable garden. The site is not far from the Buffalo Bill Museum and Downtown Cody. Sean has wifi. The signal is not too strong, but adequate. Sean knows much about the area and used to be a nature guide in Yellowstone. Sean is retired and spends his days in his knife shop. Definitely stay here if you are in the area. The site is good for family and pets.

I loved this place. Very peaceful and quiet. There is a lake nearby and the Shoshone river isn't far. Close to Cody.

This place was A-MA-ZING! A beautiful location just outside of Yellowstone. The hosts were incredibly friendly and even offered us veggies from their garden (which went great with our steak)! Close to town for quick errands, but far enough to feel secluded. A view of Buffalo Bill Reservoir is right behind the house and only takes about 5 minutes to get to. No light pollution, so the starry sky was beautiful. The ONLY downside was the lack of hookups for our trailer. Even still, my husband I would definitely (and probably will) stay again!

What a wonderful place to stay! We were greeted by the hosts (from a Covid safe distance) and set up camp with the backdrop of the mountains. The site was quiet and our kids had enough space to run around a bit after a long day in the car.

Great place to stay super close to Cody and about an hour from Yellowstone. Sean is a retired guide and has tons of tips.... listen to them all! Read his directions carefully for arrival, he’s laid it all out for you. We also had the bonus generosity of helping ourselves from their garden. Absolutely recommend and I would stay here again any tine I’m in the area.
